Feed the beast - OTW Fuel

Haven't seen much discussion on here about food. Personally while on the water, I find the key to lasting a long time fishing is bringing A LOT of food/snacks. Being well fed on the water is key for me for keeping my mood and energy level on the water.

Typically I settle for whatever the gas station stocks on the way to the launch. However, more recently I have experimented with ordering some more natural and less sugary options online such as Kind Bars and dried fruit.

Does anyone else order on the water snacks in bulk? What do you bring out on the water to feed the beast?

Bare necessities!

For my usual La Jolla trips, I pretty much always bring:

1 Nalgene of Water
1 Matte or Tea
2 hardboiled eggs
2 snack bars
ginger or mango chews
1 pack of seeds

During summer months or on longer trips, I pack beer and a sandwich or leftover pizza from Blind Lady Ale House.

Some natural bars choices that are pretty good:

Bobo bars
Larabar
Kind
Raw Revolution
Oatmega
Niibar
Perfect Bar

Talking Snacks or food while kayak fishing

Every trip I take whether on a lake or La Jolla, I always take the same necessary items. In my soft sided cooler are 6 beers (usually Tecate original), a Ham and Pepper Jack cheese sandwich from home or a Subway sandwich, an apple, granola bar, and a bottle of water (to rinse off the screen on my FF). Any time I'm going to be out on the water from 6 to 11 hours, I have to eat something because of the physical work out either on my Hobie Revo or padding my Malibu X Factor. Some times you don't get to eat when you want to. In this picture I had trolled and drifted many hours, I was just about ready to call it a day. I thought I would stop and finally eat my sandwich and have another beer. I still had my flylined mac out and stopped in the area were we usually make bait just outside the boundary. I get my sandwich and the beer and before I can even take a bite or open the new beer the reel start to scream. I put the sandwich inside the top portion of my PFD and start to bring this beautiful Yellow on board. When I was done I finally got to enjoy the sandwich and beer before heading in. It made a wonderful lunch and got a great picture of the fish and of the Kayak heading in with the 34 lb Yellow sticking out of the Fish Kill Bag. That is one of my favorite pictures.

Yeah, that's an awesome picture.

I always bring 3 or 4 hearty Granola bars, like the kind full of whole nuts, and a few bottles of water. Otherwise, I usually bring along a couple left handed cigarettes. They make my eyes all squinty, so it keeps the sun out.

I haven't done it yet, but I've had this idea to start out the day by catching some (hopefully) big mackerel when making bait, fillet one then and there, and start it curing in salt/vinegar to make some fresh shime saba (cured mackerel sashimi). Should be just about ready by lunch time.

I actually brought a baggie full of salt and a bottle of rice vinegar last time I went out, but didn't end up trying it, even though I caught a solid mackerel (the only thing biting that day...)
